Presenting Indigenous resilience and intersection in action based work to reclaim space, we disseminate our post-colonial artworks through the present to stake a radical, visionary claim on the future, creating our own living archive.

Through monumental installations and social collaboration, Cannupa Hanska Luger (Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara/Lakota) interweaves performance and political action to communicate stories about twenty-first century Indigeneity, producing large-scale projects globally.
